Holiday camera - SL1/100D + 40mm or M +22mm
« on: July 05, 2013, 05:01:52 PM »
Hi, I'd like to get a wee camera for my holidays, not taking my 5D III and L primes.. as much as Id like to have them with me all the time!

So options are SL1 +40mm pancake or eos M with 22mm pancake.

I'm leaning towards the SL1 but 40mm on it might be a wee bit too long. I love my 50mm and 35mm focal lengths.
One thing is I hate composing through a LCD, but the M + 22mm might be a nicer focal length.

Are these cameras the same sensor , and sensor size, and quality etc?

Has anyone used them both or in a similar spot looking for a decent but compact holiday camera?

Cheers!

The M shares a sensor with the T4i/650D.  The SL1 and T5i/700D have the same sensor.  The IQ is the same, the latter has Hybrid CMOS II, which has a larger phase detect AF area on the image sensor than the original version in the M.

Both are nice options, I would prefer the M+22 for compact size and 35mm focal length equivalent using the pancake lenses.  Here are the body only specs:

SL1/100D  116.8 x 90.7 x 69.4mm  407g
EOS-M      108.6 x 66.5 x 32.3mm  262g

As you pointed out, 40mm will be equivalent to a 64mm FF lens, which might be a little long for a single lens - OK for portraits, but you will probably need something wider at times.  The SL1 has an optical viewfinder but you will be limited going forward to EF-S lenses.  With a lens mount, the M can use EF and EF-S lenses in addition to the M lenses.
5DsR, EF Lenses: 35mm f/2IS, Tamron 85mm f/1.8 VC, 300mm f/2.8L II IS, 16-35mm f/4L IS, 24-70mm f/2.8LII, 70-200mm f/2.8LII
M5, EF-M lenses: 22mm f/2, 18-150mm

 ???  ???  :o

The SL1 can use EF lenses...   (In fact, the 40/2.8 you mention is EF, not EF-S.)

I would go for M+22mm. Larger aperture, wider lens, lighter, smaller. With the new firmware, the the AF in the EOS M looks pretty impressive.  With the EF adapter, the EOS M will be about the same size as the SL1, and have almost all the same functionality. The only concern I would have with the M is battery life since it doesn't have an OVF.

I would go with the EOS M as you will be getting a wider and faster lens. (35/2 vs 40/2.8 ). And for traveling smaller is always better. And at the current price it's a no brainer!
Move along nothing to see here!
